We have completed a couple of spaces and pieces of furniture with Asian designs and Asian-inspired themes. Today, we have this list to add to the growing articles of Asian-themed furniture we have here in Home Design Lover – this time around, all about Asian dressers.

The dressers that we have in this list is pretty much multi-purpose because of the number of uses they have for us – they can serve as side tables, cabinets for your jewelry and small trinkets and as for their original use, some of the dressers on this list were medicine cabinets. The dressers in this list will not only be beautiful but rather interesting because of the simplicity they have and at the same time the ornate designs of some; take a look.
